My sister is a knitting machine! Since my own knitting has pretty much stalled at the moment (I haven’t done anything in a few weeks!) I thought I’d share some of her recent knitting projects:
A wee hat for C – no picture yet cos its still a wee bit big
and here are some soakers and longies modelled by J, a very active 1 year old!

And another one
four leaf clover longies
I don’t know if I’ve mentioned it here before but my 3 month old hasn’t had the happiest of 3 months, with colic and reflux issues. He’s now a lot happier thanks to a couple of osteo sessions, and he is crying less and less! He is now happy to lie flat on his back for toy time, without crying after 2 minutes like he used to, so I thought I’d share this pic of him chilling out today:
Ooops, I am a bit slow! Here are some more birthday party pics:
E had her birthday party yesterday, and had a blast. It was a Strawberry Shortcake themed party, so Nana C made this awesome cake:
I got out the dressup box and all the kids had fun trying on E’s costumes. The birthday girl was very pleased to wear a tiara and a party hat 🙂 For some reason she could only find one glove for her Belle costume though.
Even C wore a pirate hat:
Nana C gave E a Wiggles Singstar disc, so they had a great time singing along to the Wiggles! I confess I had to have a go tonight when no one else was around 🙂
J sang and ate the microphone at the same time!
I’ll add some pics of the other kids when I get permission from their mums.
I made this while on maternity leave, for my gift stash. Then I realised that I’d made a mistake (one of the cables is a row too short) and I can’t bear to gift anything less than perfect, so C ends up with it. I tried it on him today and it fits perfectly!
Its nice soft Cleckheaton Coccoon, I love that yarn.
He was actually sitting in his bouncer crying when I put it on him, but it turns out he is a poser cos he hammed it up for the camera!
Here he is snuggling with his sister this morning while they were both still in their pjs
